Apple Orchard Owners just completed the final harvest of apples in the area and now look to change gears. Steve Wood from Wood Orchards in Egg Harbor and Sturgeon Bay says November is a transition time from harvesting to orchard maintenance.
Wood says this year’s apple crop finished better than expected considering the extremely wet conditions this past summer. According to a report by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) last week, over 116,000 tons of apples were harvested already this year.
